Disney Imposes New Security Measures after Guest Apprehended Trying to Bring Gun Into Epcot


In the wake of a guest who tried to bring a gun into Epcot in Monday, Disney has heightened security at the entrance gates for its theme parks.

It appears that all guests without bags are now being funneled through the metal detectors, where previously only random guests had been selected. WDW News Today claims they aren’t sure whether or not this is a permanent Security routine, or if it is simply to calm guests after a frightening occurrence at the parks.

Guests with bags still maintain the same routine of having bags/carriers/strollers/coolers inspected prior to entering the park. We’ll keep you posted if more security information becomes available.


What do you think of the new mandatory metal detector screening?
